Good point. *BUT*, Wire is an open forum, and as unfortunate as it
is, its expected here.

Don't misunderstand me--I'm not saying its right, just saying that
it's become acceptable in the past year...

Putting an advertisement into private email, however, is SPAM.

Prarit. Oh, one more question

"Who Needs Bathrooms?" is my version of social commentary...:)

I'm assuming you're referring to U2NEWS. I put them here to cut down
on repetitive posts. I could stop(and would) if Joel came to me about
it, and told me not to do it anymore.

>They're nothing but advertisments for your site as well.
Well...I hope someone's finding them informative... ;)
